Traumatic Cyclodialysis Cleft Surgical Management Using Encirclage and Cryotherapy : A Novel Approach
This is a retrospective case series of 4 patients with traumatic cyclodialysis cleft (CC) with features of hypotony and posterior segment manifestations of blunt trauma who were treated using encirclage and trans scleral cryoptherapy along with vitrectomy. Encirclage was placed anteriorly in order to support the cleft. There was closure of cleft and improvement in Intra ocular pressure (IOP) in all cases. Thus the identification and treatment of CC with encirclage in cases with varied posterior manifestation of trauma can lead to good anatomical and visual restoration.
